Re: 360?

I very much doubt it. The Xbox360 is based around a PowerPC architecture IBM Xenon CPU, a cousin of the Cell chips in the Playstation 3. Porting Windows would be a pain, with little reward.

However, both the XboxONE and the PS4 are more or less just x86 PCs, making software porting much, much easier.
